We are implementing an innovative solution that will vastly improve our efficiency. What used to take months to complete will be done in minutes using InfoSnap.

Edna Karr High School in New Orleans, LA, will transform student registration from a paper-based process to an efficient online solution. The charter school partnered with InfoSnap to streamline student data collection, resulting in improved business processes for administrative staff. InfoSnap’s award winning integration with PowerSchool, the school’s student information system, will effectuate real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems.
A grant that supports English language learners was awarded to Edna Karr High School to help fund InfoSnap services in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. This will facilitate better family engagement and communication in the school community. “We are excited about the flexibility our families will have and the ability to meet the need of our diverse population,” said Emily Ferris, Director of Admissions and Development at Edna Karr High School.
InfoSnap will take the student data that is given to Edna Karr High School from the New Orleans Public School Enrollment Process and Lottery, OneApp, and provide families with a method to register students online.
The solution will offer convenience for families in an effort to reduce the time spent on registration. Families who have more than one child within the school can ‘snap’ data from one student to another. The use of SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, will collect relevant data based on previously entered information or choices (grade, activities, medical history, etc.).
“We are implementing an innovative solution that will vastly improve our efficiency. What used to take months to complete will be done in minutes using InfoSnap,” notes Ferris.
After families register their students for school, the data submitted by families is reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet Edna Karr High School’s policies and then delivered into PowerSchool. Online registration will be available to the school community July 1. To help successfully complete required registration information in a timely fashion, registration kiosks will be accessible for families at the school.
